Soybean futures were mostly about 20 cents lower on Friday, but November was only down 11 cents from a week ago. Pressure came from weakness in both meal and oil, as well as some reports of impressive yields on early bean fields. Accumulated bean oil exports as a % of total projected exports are only at 91% vs. the 5yr avg of 98% for this week of the year.
